  • Great location!

    "This was the 1st time we have rented using VRBO and it was a positive experience. We just returned from 4 glorious days at this beach house. There was plenty of room for all of us; mom, dad, 2 middle school boys, and Nana. The house was clean when we arrived, we paid for linens and bath towels which worked out great, kitchen is well equipped, beds were comfy, gas grill, lots of windows for the ocean breeze. Eric, the property manager, is very nice, was attentive to our few needs, and gave us some tourist suggestions. Email communication and reservation process with the owner went very smoothly. Would definitely rent this property again!"

  • Great Getaway for a Family Wedding

    "We stayed at this lovely house during our son's wedding weekend. It was the perfect place for all of us, from the youngest granddaughter to my husband and me. We hosted a brunch the Sunday after the wedding and the layout of indoor and outdoor spaces was just perfect. If ever we are in the area again, we would definitely stay there again."

  • Annual Family Vacation

    "This was our second summer at the Golden Cottage and it was more enjoyable than the first. The set up of the home, the great views and perfect location make the Golden Cottage a great family gathering spot. Don't miss the Lobster Pot, best lobsters ever and for a special night we would recommend The Market Restaurant in Gloucester."

  • A wonderful two weeks on Plum Island

    "We just finished staying two weeks at this lovely home. The home was in pristine condition and the owner seemed to think of everything in this well appointed home with ample sleeping and three full bathrooms. The kitchen was very well appointed with excellent appliances and, as a result, we cooked many of our meals. This was ideal for our multigenerational family. The two living areas, one upstairs and the other down allowed different activities to meet the various needs. The proximity of the beach and restaurants along with a Newburyport so close by, was a great benefit. Our family hopes to return."
